Please go through the help given by SAP.
<u><b>Indicator: bulk material</b></u>
This indicator defines a BOM item as a bulk material, which is available directly at the work center (for example, washers or grease).
The dependent requirements of bulk materials are not relevant to materials planning. This means they are not taken into account for net requirements calculation. Therefore planning for bulk materials should be consumption-based.
If bulk materials are subject to material requirements planning, you must create planned independent requirements for them.
Dependent requirements are only created in the planned order for information purposes and they can be displayed there. Dependent requirements for bulk material are not shown in the MRP list or the stock/req. list.
You can maintain this indicator in both the material master record an the BOM item. The indicator in the material master record has higher priority.
If a material is always used as a bulk material, set the indicator in the material master record.
In this case, the Bulk material indicator in material master record is automatically set in the BOM item.
If a material is only used as a bulk material in individual cases, set the indicator in the BOM item.
To improve system performance, you can define in the IMG for MRP that no dependent requirements are to be created for bulk material items. However, this also means that you see no information on bulk material components in the planned order or production order.
